Video footage captured a FerroMex train departing from Zacatecas, Mexico, en route to the U.S. southern border, with migrants visibly packed onto the train cars.
They Cheer Despite U.S. Warnings
The migrants could be heard cheering while hanging off the sides of the cars. This scene unfolded despite the U.S. government sending a stern message to migrants, urging them not to attempt the journey.
Huge Surge of Migrants
Border patrols along the southern border have been grappling with an overwhelming influx of illegal crossings.
Thousands of Illegal Crossings Each Day
For instance, Ajo, Arizona, witnessed as many as 2,000 illegal crossings per day for several consecutive days last week, leading agents to resort to street releases due to overcrowded shelters. These migrants include individuals from Africa.
Tens of Thousands of People Are Crossing
In the preceding month, the Rio Grande Valley sector in Texas alone had well over 20,000 migrants in Border Patrol custody, as per information from a U.S. Customs and Border Protection source.
Entire Families Are Making the Journey
Caravans heading towards the southern border consist of families with infants and children, as well as unaccompanied minors.
They Were Released
Among the families intercepted along the Rio Grande Valley, many were released with future court dates.
Biden Wants Them to Stay in Texas
The Biden administration is contemplating a plan to require migrants who cross into the U.S. to remain in Texas illegally while awaiting their asylum screening.
Trying to Figure Out a Solution
Officials in the administration have presented this plan as a means to reduce the influx of illegal immigrants at the southern border.
Using Ankle Monitors to Track Migrants
The proposed strategy would also involve the use of ankle bracelets to monitor migrants’ locations, specifically those who are apprehended.
Taking Legal Action Against Texas
Simultaneously, the administration has taken legal action against Texas over the removal of a barrier placed in the Rio Grande and against Arizona for erecting a barrier made from shipping containers along its border with Mexico.
Figuring Out How to Provide Housing
Migrants would undergo an asylum screening process to determine their eligibility to stay in the U.S., and discussions have occurred regarding collaboration with local groups to provide housing for these migrants.
They Have Removed Hundreds of Thousands of People
Since May, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has removed or returned over 200,000 individuals, according to the agency.
Grappling With How to Deal With This Crisis
The DHS has stated that it consistently engages in policy and operational discussions to leverage its authorities for a fair, humane, and effective immigration process that efficiently addresses those without a lawful basis to remain in the country.
Bussing Migrants to ‘Sanctuary Cities’
Texas has initiated a busing program to transport migrants to “sanctuary cities” such as New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, in an effort to provide relief to border towns.
Texas Says Others Need to Share Brunt
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has argued that Texas cities have borne the brunt of illegal immigration and insists that “sanctuary cities” share in this responsibility.
They’ve Bussed Out Over 35,000 Migrants
“Texas has bused over 35,000 migrants to self-declared sanctuary cities,” he wrote earlier this month on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “Over 11,300 to D.C., over 13,300 to NYC, over 6,700 to Chicago, over 2,600 to Philadelphia, over 1,000 to Denver, over 480 to LA.”
